My favorite season every year is always the NEXT season, ya know what I mean? I love spring, but always look forward to summer. I love summer, but always look forward to fall. Are you the same way? I think I love the change of seasons so much, because it’s like a BIG breath of fresh air. While I try not to buy much, I often find myself freshening up spaces around my home and my wardrobe in honor of the breath of fresh air… ya know… totally necessary.
Inevitably in summer we spend a LOT of time outside, it seems that no matter how much sunscreen I apply a couple of us always end up a little sun kissed, this year I made my own After Sun spray and I am obsessed. Even when we don’t have sunburns, I find that after a long day in the UV’s my skin feels tight and so dry… so I like to apply this to give our skin a nice big drink of soothing hydration.
Cooling After Sun Spray- 2ML spray bottle
What you need:
- In 2ml Spray bottle add 20 drops Lavender, and 20 drops Peppermint.
- Add 2 tbsp of Pure Aloe Gel
- Add a splash of witch hazel to help combine.
- Fill to the top with distilled water, shake well before each use.
I love that this recipe only takes two oils. Peppermint adds a nice cooling sensation when sprayed on the skin. Lavender soothes skin irritations. These two oils paired with pure aloe is so soothing on the skin, we are in love.
I also rounded up either things I’ve purchased and loved this season, have been moderately obsessed with, or my all time season staples. Happy Summering!
